Machine on cold. Select the gentlest option on your washing machine. Turn the hoodie inside out.
We highly suggest you wash these hoodies inside out. The Aspire Coffee design is a rather large print and will fade over-time. To lengthen the life of the print, wash this hoodie inside out.
Not only will this minimize the amount of friction between your hoodie and the rest of your laundry, but it will prevent the colors from fading as well. On top of that, it makes it easier to wash away the dirt and sweat that is embedded in the inner layer (since it’s exposed to the surface).
Pass on the dryer.
Graphic clothing does not do well under heat. For this reason, you do not want to put them in the dryer—even the tumble low setting will cause the ink to crack. Instead, hang them up on a clothesline to dry; a drying rack also works great.
Skipping the dryer comes with another benefit—you’ll save yourself money on your electricity bill. After all, the machine is quite a power hog. By line drying or hanger drying your graphic hoodies/tshirts, you’ll also be minimizing the amount of greenhouse gases that are emitted into the atmosphere.
If you MUST use a dryer, use the lowest tumble setting possible. They will still fade and crack over time, however this can lengthen the life by a long time.
